That is the third 12 months in a row that we’ve been in a position to present turkeys to our residents, because of the beneficiant donations made year-round to Polk Sheriff’s Charities. Right here’s simply one in all many messages we obtained final 12 months, from a lady named Melissa: ‘Thanks all a lot on your contribution to the neighborhood right this moment. So many households had been blessed with a turkey for his or her Thanksgiving celebration, together with mine.’ It’s so heartwarming to have the ability to make a optimistic distinction in others’ lives.” – Grady Judd, Sheriff
